  • Note to world, Edelman is a failed political hack hoping to get a job with Hillary. Knows he is too stupid to get one in a Trump administration.

  • I've noticed that, it seems those most likely to be for Hillary are the dumbest of the GOP. Go figure! lol
    Goverment, no matter how big, is always a big problem.
  • Hey, even the stupid need jobs.
    The beatings will continue until moral improves.
  • The reality is that these people have always been Democrat plants in the GOP, Trump has just flushed them out.
    A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a Government intervention.
